NORFOLK, Va. – A local family got some help where they needed it most so their daughter could have more freedom.

The Mobility Supercenter installed a new chairlift on Monday, helping the Johnson’s with a purchase that was too expensive for the family, a spokesperson for the¬†Virginia Beach Noblemen said.
